How are you supposed to attach 2 Dark Energy every turn? Raihan every turn? Or Moltres/Energy switch? Too many pieces considering you also need to put a Spiritomb from Discard to Bench every turn and switch/retreat the active.
If Spiritomb's attack costed only 1 energy, it would be viable. Or even if one Energy was colorless we could use sth like Flaafy's ability.

When Spiritomb is KO'd, search for Rescue Carrier or Raihan or Dark Patch with the ability. If you have already have the ones you need in your hand at the start of your turn, Rescue Carrier 1 Spiritomb (2 if you won't need the damage), place it, 2 actions from manual attach/Dark Patch/Raihan to attach to it and search another Raihan, Dark Patch, or Rescue Carrier. Ideally you'd have a 0 retreat Pokemon in play to retreat every time, and unfortunately I think Air Balloon will rotate by the time this comes out so you can't properly utilize something like Celebrations Mew every time it gets KO'd.

It could be better, but I think is pretty good and has really good timing outside of Air Balloon rotating, as Hisuian Heavy Ball will be arriving to allow it to play around prized copies without using supporter for turn, Shady Dealings leaving results in Quick Shooting (which would devastate it) becoming far less common, and Mew VMAX still being strong after Astral Radiance.

interesting that they put complete PLA spoilers on the volo card when they could have just used his ginkgo guild uniform
Given PLA's been out for about 3 months now, they're probably assuming that everyone who's interested in both the TCG and the games has already played it.

Still, that card's pretty good for getting rid of any dead weight Vs like Crobat and Lumineon.
